RESULTS: All the 12 patients had full-term pregnancy. Five cases gave birth naturally, and 7 cases received cesarean section for maternity factors. No adverse pregnancy outcomes were encountered. Waist pain appeared in 2 cases in the second trimester, for both of which medication failed. One of the 2 cases had natural childbirth, while the other maintained pregnancy smoothly to cesarean section.
